LTTR was a feminist genderqueer artist collective with a flexible project oriented practice. LTTR was founded in 2001 by Ginger Brooks Takahashi, K8 Hardy and Emily Roysdon. From 2001–2006 LTTR produced an annual independent art journal, performance series, events, screenings, and collaborations. Ulrike Müller joined LTTR in 2005 and Lanka Tattersall was an editor and collaborator for issue 4. The inaugural issue was titled “Lesbians to the Rescue,” followed by “Listen Translate Translate Record,” “Practice More Failure,” “Do You Wish to Direct me?,” and the last, “Positively Nasty.” Each issue was initiated by an open call and contained hand made artists multiples.

A comprehensive archive of past events, as well as free downloads of all of the journals, is available on LTTR’s website.
